New Teams coming soon!

The new Microsoft Teams is coming soon! Teams is getting completely overhauled. The new Teams preview is now available for Windows desktop users. It will come soon to Mac users and Teams on the web. Microsoft Teams came out in 2017. Today, over 280 million people use Teams monthly. Switching from the new Teams preview back to classic Teams is easy. Not all functionality is available in the new Teams preview, but the missing features and new Teams features are being added in the upcoming months.

The redesigned Teams will be faster and use fewer resources - less ram and better battery life. Microsoft anticipates the new Teams (general availability) will be out later this year.
